Kill Noir is the twenty-eighth case in Starlight Shores and the fifth one situated in the Everdeen Park district.

Plot

Previously, the team discovered that someone in the SSPD was working for the Kingpin. After hearing news that a body had been found in a nearby smoking lounge, the team found the body of veteran actor Sophia Diamandia, a famous film noir actress most famous for a role in a film called "The Killer's Smoke". Malcolm confirmed that she died of poisoning from her cigar and that the poison was native to Europe, meaning the killer has travelled to Europe.

During the first chapter, Sean Axton police officer who reported the crime, Vanessa McAvery, actress cast in the remake of "The Killer's Smoke", and Adam Russ, profiler for the SSPD were suspected. At the end of the case, Isaac informed the team that the victim's house had been engulfed in flames!

After salvaging all the evidence they could from Sophia's house, the team suspected Jackson Franco, a junior officer, and Gerard Layton, an obsessed fan of the victim's. In a shock turn of events, it was also discovered that Sophia was Adam's mother. He explained that Sophia had abandoned him and his father, Alden, in order to become a big film star. Adam was infuriated for what Sophia had done, explaining that his father worked himself into an early grave looking after him due to Alden being a single parent.

In chapter 3, the team found an axe sent to victim as a death threat from Gerard. He explained angrily that Sophia had ignored him at a meet and greet , so he therefore threatened to behead her by sending an axe to her home. He further explained that it wasn't an idle threat and that he planned to behead her, keeping her head as trophy. Deeply disturbed by Gerard's crazed actions, Linda decided he should be left alone to calm down.

In the end, the player incriminated Vanessa to be the killer. Vanessa admitted to the crime, saying that all Sophia did was ridicule her, and be critical of her acting skills. During her confession, Vanessa got angrier saying Sophia was a witch who deserved to die. Alexander Donovan sentenced her to twenty years in jail.

In the AI, the team focused their attention on finding the Kingpin's associate in the SSPD. After searching for evidence, they were able to find out that Sean Axton was the was helping the Kingpin. Andrew Ramone came along with Linda and the player to arrest Sean for conspiring with a known criminal. After arresting Sean, Isaac requested your help. He said he had heard information that Matias Mornstone with out of prison and that he had last say Matias at the smoking lounge. After questioning Matias, he told them someone had paid his bail and that he was a free man until his trial. Rightfully, Andrew was suspicious of Matias and decided we should keep an eye on him.

At the end of the case, Isaac told the player that Matias had been seen entering an abandoned boxing training centre. The team decided to head there next to catch Matias.
